The Family Court System

Sometimes hostile people will be vindictive enough to file false allegations of child abuse. With this going on the child suffers because the parent only filed false allegations to get the upper hand. Maybe they just want to get even with the other parent, step parent and sometimes other family members. In some cases abuse does occur. But in these cases that many of us have to deal with one of the parents will lie in court about child abuse. Sometimes even sexual child abuse. The hostile parent will not lie only once but many times because they can get away with it. The court system should make these parents accountable for their bad actions. There should be at least a fine to pay, loss of custody, or even possible jail time. Lying about abuse isn't okay it's perjury and it's wrong. It's also a form of using the child as a pawn in a selfish game some parents play. The law should uphold the law and keep people accountable when they lie about child abuse and lie in court papers. Children shouldn't be used as a pawn to hurt others. They shouldn't be caught up in a lie made by their parents. Children should be love and not used. Please start keeping parents accountable.

How this will help

It will hopefully stop parents using their children as pawns in a vindictive game. The family court system should keep these parents accountable.
